2022 Tundra and 2022 Silverado comparison. Is the Silverado underpriced?


In this 2022 Tundra and 2022 Silverado comparison video, Publisher Tim Esterdahl pits his 2022 Toyota Tundra Limited against the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado High Country. There is a roughly $9k difference between Esterdahl’s lower-trimmed Tundra and the fully loaded Silverado, which makes for an interesting comparison. See what you get from each for the money, and help him decide if the Tundra is overpriced, or if the Silverado is underpriced.

Huge price difference

The Silverado is $68k fully loaded. This is a High Country trim, folks. We’re talking super swank and would normally be compared to the Tundra’s Capstone trim. Esterdahl’s Tundra is a Limited, and the MSRP for it is $61k. What gives?

Matching exteriors?

What’s funny about this walk around is I’m seeing just how similar these trucks are. When the new Tundra launched I thought to myself, man, that looks a bit like a Silverado. Then Esterdahl points out some of the similarities and yep, I was right. That said, there are a few slight differences and I think the big one for me would be the composite bed in the Tundra vs the bedliner in the Silverado. The running boards on the Silverado are power, too, vs. the hard rails Esterdahl installed on his Tundra,. which didn’t have running boards.

Interior: 2022 Tundra and 2022 Silverado comparison

No panoramic moonroof in the Silverado High Country. But it does have some nice wood trim and a double glove box.

The Tundra has a nice armrest on the windowsill, the mirrors fold in. The center console has a larger bin but there is no flat loading floor in the back seat. Perhaps the Tundra makes up for that with larger under-seat storage space.

Really big news

The seats in the 2022 Silverado are comfortable. If you’ve watched any of the Pickup Truck + SUV Talk videos of GM trucks from the last couple of years, you’ll know we’ve fussed about the seats being uncomfortable. So, it’s good to see that GM has done something about this, and seats are comfortable again!

From fuel economy to cabin noise levels, Esterdahl covers it all in this 2022 Tundra and 2022 Silverado comparison video. Have a watch, and let us know what you think. Is the Tundra way overpriced?

    Hey Tim, big fan the channel thanks for all the information. I am considering a new Tundra and have been following your issues with it as well as others. I’m curious if the issues are truly issues and Toyotas is working to improve quality or if they just consider this normal operation. TRDJon and some other individuals took their vehicles in and Toyota said that’s normal operation to have windows rattle, doors rattle, center armrest squeak, AC reset after vehicle shut off, window trim issues all that kind of stuff. Is Toyota looking to addressing any of these or are they fine with the way the vehicles being built?
